Dangerous to be together. Painful to be apart.
Savannah Colbert knows she broke up with Tristan Coleman for the right reasons. Most of all, to keep from killing him with her new vampire abilities. But try telling her heart. Now, lost in a sea of hostile Clann faces, Sav tries to come to terms with what she's becoming and what that means for her future. And that someone is doing their best to bully her into making a terrible mistake.
Tristan can't believe Sav won't even talk to him. If being apart is her decision, fine. Just don't expect him to honor it. But even as he prepares to fight for the girl he loves, forces beyond their control take them both in directions neither could have foreseen or prepared for.
A reckoning is coming …and not everyone will survive.
I started this book and was immediately drawn into Savannah's world. It was the same way with Crave. Melissa definitely has a way of entrapping you in her stories.
You can't help but to feel bad for Savannah and Tristan. They've been in love with each forever. But there is no safe way that they can be together since Savannah started developing her vampire powers. She drains his energy just by kissing him. Not to mention, the smell of his blood makes her newly developing bloodlust cause havoc. She has good control over the bloodlust, but still, you never know what could happen. Tristan can't seem to understand that Savannah is just trying to keep him safe and ends up kind of mentally torturing her.
So there is all of this drama surrounding Savannah and Tristan. The Clann kids at school are still giving Savannah a hard time, they completely fried the electrical system in her car. Savannah is dealing with living with her dad, drinking blood, and breaking rules. She's made an unexpected friend in Anne's ex. Someone is causing problems between the Clann and the vampires and it's all circling back to Savannah.
Things definitely come to the forefront in this book. There are a ton of things that happen in this book that I didn't see coming. This is a great second book in the series. And it ended on such a cliffhanger, I can't wait to read the third.
